Returning to Work After Disability

When you return to your job after a disability, you may not be able to do everything you used to do. Or your disability may require that you take on a different job. Learn about:

  • How you and your employer can discuss possible changes to your job description or duties to help accommodate your needs.
  • If you can no longer perform your previous job duties, reassessing your job skills can help you better define your job experiences. Many skills can be transferred from one job to another.
  • If you are looking for a new position, see our job search tips for a step-by-step guide to securing the job you want.
  • The Americans with Disabilities Act protects people when they return to work. It also protects job rights, transportation options and building access.
